Groundbreaking case study to be explored at the Global Construction Summit, 21 February.
If a group of geophysicists wanted to renovate their building, you’d expect them to want it to help tackle the climate crisis.
That’s what happened with the net-zero renovation of the American Geophysical Union headquarters in Washington, DC.
Determined to exceed a LEED Platinum rating, they retained architects Hickok Cole to turn a legacy landmark into the city’s first net-zero headquarters.
The result was a building that powers itself by solar, uses 77% less water, and recovers thermal energy from its wastewater.
Guilherme Almeida is director of sustainability at Hickok Cole, and led design on the project.
He will discuss the transformation in a webinar entitled “The built environment’s journey to Net Zero” on 21 February, part of the Global Construction Summit 2023.
